I started learning my instrument when I was: Age 7
My favourite style of music is: Music from the Romantic Period. In particular, French composers like Henri Tomasi and Pierre-Max Dubois. I also like to listen and play a wide variety of music ranging from renaissance to pop.
My favourite piece of music to listen to is: I really really enjoy opera in particular, the works of Puccini, so it would have to be something from Turandot or Tosca
My favourite piece of music to play is: Sibelius 2nd Symphony
The best performance I’ve ever been to was: When the Sydney Symphony Orchestra did the roman trilogy of Roman Carnival, Pines of Rome and then Fountains of Rome. It absolutely rocked!
The best performance I’ve ever given was: My final recital at the Sydney con in 2016
Something I really love is: Chamber Music! It’s always a pleasure to be able to play in small ensembles, as the music and what it demands of us as musicians are vastly different to that of an Symphony orchestra.
Something I don’t like much is: When the conductor stops just before a trombone entry and you spent the last 80 bars counting!
Something you might be surprised to know about me is: I’m an absolute nerd who loves my Batman comics and paraphernalia
